Plantronics M124 Cordless Headset

The Good Easy to slip on and off; good mike placement; in-line volume control.

The Bad No Answer/End button; some users may find the plastic earpiece uncomfortable.

The Bottom Line The M124 costs less than the similarly styled M135, but it's arguably not quite as comfortable.

Plantronics M124 Cordless Headset

Over-the-ear headsets, such as Plantronics' M124, are less obtrusive than their headband-style equivalents. Like the step-up M135, the M124 is a stylish, relatively comfortable headset that offers decent sound quality and is particularly well suited for in-car use. But some may prefer the M135's earpiece.Over-the-ear headsets, such as Plantronics' M124, are less obtrusive than their headband-style equivalents.

Questionable comfort
Similar in design to Jabra's , this model features a hard plastic earpiece that rests on top of your ear and is debatably a tad less comfortable than the M135's foam-padded earpiece. The unit is fairly light and secure when placed on the ear, and it is also easy to slip on and off. That said, we found that it felt more secure than Jabra's EarWrap.

As far as features go, the M124 has its fair share. You'll find an in-line volume control as well as a mike-adjustment switch. Unfortunately, it doesn't have an Answer/End button.
